IngeloreFilm tells local woman's story"

"Ingelore Honigstein never told her children about her childhood in Nazi Germany.  Then Honigstein, who is deaf, went to a seminar on the deaf experience in the Holocaust where she told her story....over 500 people there.  A woman in the audience had a son who was studying history at a university in California and he invited her to speak to the class.  That was where Honigstein's son Frank Stiefel, a filmmaker in Los Angeles heard his mother's story for the first time."...."And that was how the 40-minute film 'INGELORE'....was made".
